Hello Clancy,

You might be interested to know that Palmer Walker and I recently co-authored an article on CR-56022 that is the true story of the events prior to, during, and the years after the sinking of the USCG Cable Boat. It will appear in the Summer edition of Inland Seas (quarterly of the Great Lakes Historical Society). Jim
